NCLEX Information

To ensure public protection, the Georgia Board of Nursing requires applicants to pass NCLEX-RN as a condition of licensure.  NCLEX-RN  measures the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a newly licensed, entry-level nurse.  Passing the exam demonstrates your competence so that you can launch your nursing career. 

As you prepare to take NCLEX-RN, you can increase confidence and reduce test anxiety by being fully prepared for the test experience.  You may find helpful information by visiting the following links:
